Author Invites You to Visit the Emerald Isle

Arthur Cola has written about Irish folklore, and will be on hand at the Muskego Public Library, offering an escape to Ireland through reading and a real tour of the Emerald Isle.

This information comes to us from Elke Saylor, Adult Services Librarian with the Muskego Public Library:

The Muskego Public Library is happy to announce the visit of Arthur Cola, a local author who has written a number of novels aimed at youth as well as adults. Some of his work introduces the reader to Irish folklore, so, with St. Patrick’s Day approaching, join us in welcoming Mr. Cola on Monday, March 4th at 7:30 PM. The author will introduce his fiction, talk about his travels and research, and answer questions. Books will be for sale at the event.

Cola, who has 35 years of experience as an educator, currently resides with his family in Burlington, but he has traveled extensively in Europe researching cultural sites and folklore in preparation for writing his novels. Several of his novels feature Irish history and folklore, but Arthur has also written two novels, “The Stone Cutter Genius” and “The Brooch,” that take the reader to Renaissance Italy and blend historical fiction with supernatural elements.

Through Bon Voyage Travel (kari@bonvoyagecruisevacations.com) readers may form groups or join a current group to accompany the author to Ireland, Britain or Italy visiting all the sites where the action in his novels take place.

Mr. Cola is a member of the Writer’s Guild of America and is currently working on his next novel.

This program is free and open to everyone. Please call (262) 271-2110 for more information and to register.
